Solid Wood Flooring
Solid Wood Flooring
Solid hardwood flooring is an excellent material. From the simple early wooden planks that were uprooted and placed into prestigious townhouses hundreds of years ago to the highly sophisticated tongue and groove solid floors we see today, the look these woods bring are timeless.
Solid flooring remains one of the most desirable flooring types to date, with its authentic feel and naturally organic properties making this an extraordinary choice for your project’s flooring. Whilst engineered wood flooring is our predominant flooring structure, solid real wood flooring has a variety of advantages and is a high quality choice for all surfaces looking to add soul and feeling.
What are the benefits of solid wood flooring?
A big advantage that solid wood flooring has is in its application.
Whilst thick engineered floors are incredibly durable, it does sometimes limit their usage, as they are heavier. Being less bulky, authentic solid wood can be used on every surface. Walls, ceilings and floors can all be covered in these solid woods, adding much-needed character and textural feeling to spaces.
Many of these woods are packed with soul and vibrancy that draws attention to all decorative surfaces. These woods make for perfect feature walls and stand-out spaces.
Being entirely solid, these floors can be sanded down time after time within your project, returning the original look (minus the texture) and allowing your flooring to last a lifetime. This works in the same manner as a wear layer on an engineered floor, only much thicker, with some of our reclaimed solid woods being 20mm in thickness.
Solid wood installation and care
Once you’ve made the investment into a beautiful new solid wood floor, you’ll want to install it correctly, to ensure that the floor will last the lifetime you come to expect from our floors.
Solid woods can be installed on walls, floors and even ceilings, but we do not recommend them for use over underfloor heating. The heat can manipulate the structure of the wood and issues. For more information we highly recommend reading our guide on how to install your solid wood flooring.
Caring for your floor correctly is just as important as the fitting process, and such care should be completed by using one of our carefully created care systems. Read our guide on floor care.
